MOJO108 Spirit of Christmas

This is my take on the Mojo Monday sketch that was posted yesterday. I'm in the mood for Christmas cards, so I pulled out the Christmassy papers and stamps and put this together.

The snowflakes are die cut with a Spellbinders die, and I covered them with Picket Fence distress stickles (my favorite bottle next to Star Dust). After the stickles dried, I sponged the snowflakes just a bit with some chocolate ink. I love making these vintage-y distress-y snowflakes!

The sentiment is from Cornish Heritage Farms' Christmas Expressions set, and it is stamped on the white designer paper from the Basic Grey Wassail collection. The othe papers are also from the Wassail collection. Yeah, I'm just a little addicted to the Basic Grey papers. Hee hee!

Stamps: Christmas Expressions (Cornish Heritage Farms)
Ink: Dark Chocolate (PTI)
CS: Dark Chocolate (PTI), white, Basic Grey Wassail dp
Other: sponge, Picket Fence distress stickles, large brad, snowflake die cut, chocolate satin ribbon (May Arts)
